Ammonium lactate belongs to a class of medications known as alpha-hydroxy acids and serves as an effective treatment for xerosis and ichthyosis vulgaris, an inherited dry skin condition, in both adults and children. Its mode of action involves boosting skin hydration levels, leading to improved skin health.

Uses and Dosage

Ammonium lactate is available in the form of cream and lotion, both intended for topical application on the skin. The recommended dosage is to apply it twice daily to the affected skin area.

Adhere to a consistent schedule by applying it at approximately the same time each day. Apply ammonium lactate exactly as directed by your healthcare provider. Refrain from using more or less of it or applying it more frequently than prescribed.

Before each use of the lotion, make sure to shake the container well to ensure an even distribution of the medication.

To apply ammonium lactate, take a small amount of cream or lotion and gently rub it on the affected skin area.
